Ha. I just ordered Rota SDRs albeit with Blizzaks for winter. I don't like our BBS stockers much. I know that functionally they are awesome (strong, light, yadda, yadda) but I don't think they look that great. I may suffer through one more summer with them since the stock tires could probably go that far. Have fun keeping them clean. (That's probably the real reason I don't like them - cause I am too lazy to clean them.)

What's with the third pic where you are an inch from scraping w/o the lip? I hope that's not just coming off your driveway or you are in trouble. Where are you at in UT?

Yeah, I would never ever put Rotas on my car...why would you do that, why I ask???? Anyway, nice choice. I am a H.S. teacher and I've had my "fast and the furious students" (you know the type), ask me when I am going to get new wheels...what???? the BBS ones are awesome...just hard to clean

...but I do understand there are other good ones that have a different style...but you certainly don't NEED to upgrade those for performance IMHO...

I love my BBSs as well, but Rotas aren't that bad fellaz. I had a set on my Bug Eye and recieved plenty of complements on them.

Rotas look alright but the whole point is that they are ripoffs of good brand name wheels. They are fine for on a civic or even a normal wrx but not on an sti that comes with such nice wheels. Im pretty sure we just had this conversation though lol.

Yeah, I can agree with that.

I'd rather have a scratched up BBS than a Rota as a DD wheel.

I don't think Rotas are that bad. I have a set I use as winter wheels and for the price they were great and I don't mind if they get banged up in the winter, whereas I would be pissed if my stock BBS rims got curb rash, chips, etc.

I might be getting another set for track wheels, again so if they get banged up I won't cry as much. ;)
